220

Technological artist, philosopher and neurohacker



Transdisciplinary creator devoted to the philosophical development of meta.reality, a concept that intends to question the way every human builds it’s own abstraction of reality depending on their interests, cultural and biological context and it’s own cognitive limitations, beliefs and knowledge.


220’s work is varied, and an unusual mix between neuroscience, philosophy, art, technology and occultism, which get translated into algorithms that produce video, net.art, music, audio/visual conceptual exploration, prints, artificial cognition driven creatures and induced neurological experiences.


His work has been presented in Mexico’s National Arts Center (from which he was also awarded a grant), Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Contemporary Art Universitary Museum, Philosophy and Letters Faculty, Philosophical Research Institute and Music Faculty (UNAM), and at festivals such as Live Performers Meeting, Brainhack, KOSMICA, INFINITO and Campus Party.

Resources



Neurobeat technique site

A site about an auditory illusion that's ideal for musicians, as it makes the audience listen to a beat that doesn't actually exist. It exploits the brain capabilities to fill up gaps.



Central de Realidades Alternativas

A philosophy site with essays about technology and it's effects on society, neurocolonialism, hyperhumanism, meta.reality, cognition, politics and more.


Initiatives

Human BIOS Project

an effort on gathering people around human development/enhancement, research, methods, practices and technology

Laboratorio de Narrativas Algorítmicas

LNA provides playground for the creation of digital generative universes through data mangling
